Mr. Tristan Robin Blakeman

We are so proud to announce that Tristan Robin Blakeman
is now a member of the Design Team.  

We have watched Tristan's work for a period of time and knew we had to ask him to be on the Team,
he has graciously agreed and we are very happy.   
His work includes fabrics, collage, assemblage along with master quilting along with other works. 
   Dramatic, gorgeous, a few words to describe his projects.
And he has a great sense of humor which makes us smile!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
